Baseball is one of the most popular sports in Japan. It was introduced to Japan in 1872 by Horace Wilson, who taught at the Kaisei School in Tokyo. The first baseball team was called the Shimbashi Athletic Club and was established in 1878. Baseball has been a popular sport ever since. It is called yakyu in Japanese, combining the characters for fielding and ball.

99Koshien-01bIn Japan, high school baseball generally refers to the 2 annual baseball tournaments played by high schools nationwide culminating at a final showdown at Hanshin Koshien Stadium in Nishinomiya, Japan. They are organized by the Japan High School Baseball Federation in association with Mainichi Shimbun for the National High School Baseball Invitational Tournament in the spring (also known as “Spring Koshien”) and Asahi Shimbun for the National High School Baseball Championship in the summer (also known as “Summer Koshien”).

These nationwide tournaments enjoy widespread popularity, arguably equal to or greater than professional baseball. Qualifying tournaments are often televised locally and each game of the final stage at Koshien is televised nationally on NHK. The tournaments have become a national tradition, and large numbers of frenzied students and parents travel from hometowns to cheer for their local team. It is a common sight to see players walking off the field in tears after being eliminated from the tournament by a loss. Continue reading ‘99 Koushien, (SLPS-02110)’ »

3D Baseball is one of the first PlayStation games to use 3D polygonal models and stadiums. Everything from the batter’s swing and movements are rendered in 3D in order to capture a realistic essence of baseball.

It comes equipped with a MLBPA (Major League Baseball Players Association) license that allows for real teams and players. There are over 700 actual major league players included with their own statistics and batting stances (50 of which are included). Each team plays in their own stadium rendered after its real-life counterpart.

3DBaseballTheMajors-01eThere are a few gameplay options you can choose from. The season mode is just that — a full season of baseball. You can play it with an arcade setting or you can be the general manager of your team. Being the general manager means you will have to actually run the team. You’ll have to pick line-ups and your pitching rotation, substitute batters and runners, trade players, etc. This also allows you to build your very own dream team featuring your favorite players. You can play a short or extended season or opt to play a quickie arcade game against the computer or friend. The choice is yours.

3D Baseball also features the commentating talent of Van Earl Wright. There are over a thousand comments to be heard ranging from snide insults to player statistics and the announcement of substitutes.

Features:
Choose from among 700 MLB players
Over 50 authentically recreated batting stances

Zoids is a multi-media model-kit-based franchise originating from Japanese toy company Tomy (now Takara-Tomy); though now produced by various companies through licenses. The majority of the franchise is built around and focused on the various model kit series. The franchise has expanded from strictly motorized model kits to highly detailed and posable model kits, action figures and even PVC figurines. The various anime series, comics, manga books and video games all serve as tie-in media products for the franchise, to expand both consumer base and franchise recognition.

Zoids are fictional mechanical life-forms, found on the planet Zi. A Zoid is essentially a mechanical animal formed around a techno-organic ‘core’ (known as a “Zoid Core”), which serves as its heart and mind. The Core is considered to be ‘alive’, making the Zoid a living creature. Otherwise, its body is an artificial mechanical construct like any other mecha.

ZoidsZenebus-01bBeginning fairly early after the start of the original Japanese Zoid releases, the battle story first introduced the conflict between two rival nations: the Helic Republic and Zenebas Empire. Their main weapons were Zoids, living war machines built from metal-based lifeforms native to planet Zi. The Zenebas Zoids were mostly red and silver and more armored, the Helic more skeletal and favoring blue and grey.

Zoids – Zenebus vs Heric (aka Zoids – Teikoku vs Kyouwakoku – Mecha Seita no Idenshi) is a tactical RPG. The player can chose to play as either the Helic Republic or the Zenebas Empire. The Helic side is the “easy” mode, as the player starts out with a unit of One Godos, whereas the Zenebas side gives him a unit with an Iguan, Molga, Merda and Gator.
The game is divided into different missions that the player has to complete. When a mission is completed, more Zoids are unlocked and can be bought and be added to the player units.
In the gameplay when the player confronts an enemy on the field, the game starts up a turn-base 3DCG battle between the two Zoids. If the players character runs out of EP, it can’t attack.
